When the bee's beard the front of the hive, has anyone seen the queen join them?

Not yet. Haven't been looking for very long however. First season and all.;)
I couldn't find it just now, but there's a recent bearding thread where a beek with a lot of posts said that could happen. I'm a first year person too, so I've not seen it. One of my hives is bearding like crazy right now...the other two, not at all.
If she's ever been out there, I've never seen it.
All my hives "beard" at night. One hive nearly reaches the ground on especially during warm nights.
I saw a queen walking on the cover one day... but never noticed one in the beard, no.
